Statement on Orlando



On behalf of the Hermandad, we are deeply saddened and roused by the incident at Pulse in Orlando. There is no acceptance of attacking another class of people based upon their protective class status and/or infringe upon their civil rights. Our thoughts and prayers are with the victim's families and all affected by this event.

While we are dismayed by the hate and ignorance that still exists today, we are encouraged that our Hermandad creates a safe place for all individuals. Last year in 2015, Latinas Promoviendo Comunidad/ Lambda Pi Chi Sorority, Incorporated became the first Latina fraternal organization to update our governing Constitution to ensure we are inclusive. We hope in light of this tragedy and in memory of the victims, we all can come together in action, advocacy, and policy to protect everyone's civil rights.

In solidarity,

 The National Executive Board, Latinas Promoviendo Comunidad/ Lambda Pi Chi Sorority, Inc.
